Questions and Answers

Q: I got disconnected, how do I rejoin a call.

A: If you get disconnected, do not call the admin or anyone individually, as that's going to create a one-to-one call between you and that person. Instead, send a text in the Group Chat and ask that you be dialed back in.

Q: I'm an admin for the call and I got disconnected, how do I rejoin.

A:If you're a group admin and you get disconnected, you can click the phone icon on the top right, and redial everyone (see picture above).

Q: I'm a group admin, how do I rejoin somone that got disconnected.

A: Either a) redial the whole group or b) click the plus sign on the top right of the call, and add the participant that got disconnected.

Q: Should I create a new group for each tournament or weekend, or recycle the same group every tournament/weekend.

A: That comes down to personal preference. What we've been doing most of the time is creating a new group for each weekend, naming it for instance "CCA Nov 21-22" and adding the appropriate people. The alternative, is to create a generic group (for example "CCA-ICC tournaments") and each week add/remove participants to that same group.
